My Life


would be so boring without my quilting and the wildlife we live around. You can't imagine how blessed we feel that animals like big horn sheep, deer and elk come to our property for refuge. We moved into this "hunter's cabin", just thrilled to find a little house on some acreage in the mountains, never expecting to be a part of a wildlife show every day. (The wildlife were probably thrilled the hunters moved.) We do have rattlesnakes in the summer, but that will have to be another post.

The wallhanging is my version of an antique string quilt I saw, I made it as a quilt as you go, each triangle sewed separately and then joined together, added the vines and flower for interest from a Ginger Co. quilt I had seen. I'm afraid it's on my ceiling, we have a little house.

  1. Another beauty. Your quilts are really inspiring me to try things on my own. I have so many antique quilt books to draw from...I'm going to take the leap.

  3. What a good idea to use your ceiling when you run out of room on your walls. I'd be afraid to live so close to the wildlife.
